Kurztext / Annotation

In a magisterial work of narrative nonfiction that weaves together the racially fraught history of public education in Milwaukee and the broader story of hypersegregation in the rust belt, Lessons from the Heartland tells of an iconic citys fall from graceand of its chance for redemption in the twenty-first century.A symbol of middle American working-class values and pride, Wisconsinand in particular urban Milwaukeehas been at the forefront of a half-century of public education experiments, from desegregation and school choice, to vouchers and charter schools. Picking up where J. Anthony Lukass Pulitzer Prizewinning Common Ground left off, Lessons from the Heartland offers a sweeping narrative portrait of an All-American city at the epicenter of American public education reform, and an exploration of larger issues of race and class in our democracy. Miner (whose daughters went through the Milwaukee public school system and who is a former Milwaukee Journal reporter) brings a journalists eye and a parents heart to exploring the intricate ways that jobs, housing, and schools intersect, underscoring the intrinsic link between the future of public schools and the dreams and hopes of democracy in a multicultural society.This book will change the way we think about the possibility and promise of American public education.
